I’m streetwise, I’m a savvy gal,
   I safeguard what is mine.
A guy can’t push my buttons with
   Just any pickup line.

But zodiac vocabulary
   Loosens me like wine;
A lad can find my sweet spot if
   He murmurs, “What’s your sign?”

So let him woo with astral chat
   And tease with words like trine –
My horoscope foretells that I
   Will swiftly get supine.

On the natal chart that sways my heart
   The planets all align
To make my glad parts vibrate when
   A date purrs, “What’s your sign?”
